SOG-Bite

If you’ve got the skills to open a bottle using your belt buckle or more daringly with your everyday carry knife handle, kudos to you. But if you’re not that adept with adapting, perhaps it’s best to have a good bottle opener at the ready. The SOG Bite is small, convenient, and has just the right amount of dark menace to intimidate the most stubborn of beer bottles. The black skull donning a special forces beret (not a Marcel Marceau version) is modeled after SOG’s Military Assistance Command, Vietnam logo and the two slotted points are designed to attach to a backpack strap for easy carry and access. It’s also small enough to fit in your pocket or on your key ring. So, if it’s after a long day of backpacking or just hangin’ with the boys, the Bite will be seriously popular by virtue of both function and design.

We demand a lot from our shirts, which is why we like the shirts that come from Batch. Batch makes shirts that are durable, stylish, and well-built (by hand!)–without the hefty price tag. Case in point: Batch’s Specialist Utility Shirt. Equal parts rugged yet refined and stylish yet durable, this shirt expertly balances simplicity, detail and function with its Giza cotton construction, oversized chest pockets with side expansion and spread collar. Those same details make it great with jeans or worn open over your favorite tee. Dress better with Batch.
